#WholeChild - Focus on Safety: SafeCeiver

Our students' safety is always our first priority. Safe, physical and emotional safety, is also one of the five tenets of the Whole Child framework. Recently, with funds provided by our school's PTA (Thank you, teachers at Sterling School were introduced to a device called the SafeCeiver. Currently, we are the only elementary school in the district with this device. The SafeCeiver is a one-way radio with multiple receivers for the quick and discreet dissemination of important instructions and information. Sometimes school leaders need to be able to give urgent updates to our teachers in times of emergency. The SafeCeiver is a simple, proven system that streamlines communication so that administrators can focus on solving the problems. If you'd like to see more, check out the video below. #WholeChild
